I am one of those teachers who went back to college as a second career to earn my teaching credential. I moved to another state after receiving my credential and substituting for six months. Waited two years to look for a teaching job in my new state (my bad) and then found out that I needed to get my current states certificate before anybody would even interview me or hire me. Long story, but now I have the state certificate, but still have not been able to get a job. I lack any network or contacts. I am thinking about enrolling in a Masters of Education program hoping to increase my knowledge of teaching and to make contacts. Do you think it is a good way to network? Do you think I would be able to make contacts and possibly land a job through a Masters Program? I know at the very least I can get updated recommendation letters (mine are 5 years old now). Any advice is greatly appreciated!
